We're so sad! And yet this episode made us so happy!
Gleehas officially ended and we're officially gleeking out! The series finale premiered this past Friday and a ton of stuff happened!
So much so that we don't know where to start! SPOILERS AHEAD!
Well, the show started with a flashback hour that made us feel super nostalgic! And we were definitely feeling super sad when the late Cory Monteith aka Finn was mentioned during the flashbacks.
But the show's series finale REALLY worked because of the series going back to what made the show work best!
By focusing on the original stars of this show like Chris Colferand Lea Michele- the creator Ryan Murphy brought the show back to its roots and produced an ah-mazing finale that wrapped up a lot of storylines!
Some of those wrapped up storylines included the New Directions winning nationals, the character McKinley being transferred to a performing arts school where the character Will is the principal. After that, the show jumped to the year 2020 where, deep breath, Kurt and Blaine move to New York and become a celebrity couple.
Artie and Tina are together - in life and in movies that are in film festivals. Sam is seen with a new girlfriend every week. Kurt and Blaine have a baby that a pregnant Rachel carries for them. And Rachel turns out to get married to Jesse St. James. Mercedes becomes a world famous singer, and Sue actually becomes Vice President of the U.S. with plans of running for POTUS later on — seriously!
But it was the final scene that included almost every character that's ever been in the New Directions that had us going and especially the very last shot you see in this series!
That last shot is a new plaque in the newly named Finn Hudson Auditorium that reads: "The Finn Hudson Auditorium – See the world not as it is, but as it should be."
And we were bawling by the end of all that! It was amazing!
